I admit I salivated when looking at Peterbrooke's Chocolatier's Instagram post.  I had to comment on the white chocolate covered strawberries (they are my weakness).  Little did I know that Owners Kevin and Jamie Wray actively post and respond to comments.  We exchanged comments and next thing you know, Bill and I are visiting after church on Sunday.

Peterbrooke Chocolatier sits on the corner of New England and Park Avenue in Winter Park.  The door is always open, even in the summer because the smell of chocolate has a way of drawing people in to the shop.  When you enter the chocolate shop, there are chocolate baskets all around the room.  There is a section of dispensers that pour out chocolate covered raisins, almonds, milk duds and more.  Keep walking toward the back of the store you will find the case of gelato (which was quite tasty).  At the back of the store you will find the glass partition showing the workshop (I'm not sure how they resist the chocolate).  We were there to witness an employee making their popular chocolate covered popcorn.  In fact, it is one of their best selling items.  You can purchase a bag online for $9.  After a quick sample, we could see why it's so popular.

One unique thing about Peterbrook Chocolatier is that they can customize almost everything.  They make cute cases out of chocolate that can be used to keep special items.  Jamie Wray makes custom chocolate shoes (average cost is about $40).  She can even make them with a red bottom!

The store was buzzing with Valentine's Day preparation.  There were messages of love in English, French and Spanish.  After talking with Kevin for a bit we enjoyed some gelato and the beautiful day in Winter Park.
